Ensuring the Health of Your Equipment


Why Condition Monitoring?

Condition monitoring is about more than maintaining equipment: it's a critical task that can ensure power keeps flowing, machines keep working, equipment lasts longer, and companies avoid breakdowns.


Every minute machines are stopped costs thousands of dollars.

developing a successful condition monitoring program with the right tools saves money
  • Extend the life of machines, motors, and systems
  • Reduce energy expenses
  • Reduce the time needed for maintenance
  • Optimize maintenance programs
  • Improve asset management decisions
  • Avoid unplanned outages and unexpected downtime

Check out this representation of a factory floor with locations where facilities maintenance engineers can effectively perform condition monitoring using Teledyne FLIR products.

Predict the optimal time to perform maintenance

There are lots of ways to decide when to perform equipment maintenance:

  • Let the equipment run until it fails
  • Schedule regular repairs regardless of condition
  • Monitor equipment to track loss of performance

Or—get proactive. Build a cost-effective condition monitoring program based around thermal imaging and investigate the root causes of equipment failure. This will help you pinpoint the optimal time for maintenance and even allow you to improve equipment, so failures don't happen again.
